I'm assigning IDs as such:

CVE-2011-2703 mapserver SQL injection flaws
CVE-2011-2704 mapserver stack based buffer overflows



----- Original Message -----
Alan, Even, thanks for your replies.

Just to clarify this one a bit yet. Two CVE identifiers (one for the
multiple SQL injection flaws, the other for the stack based buffer
overflow issue) seem to be necessary in this case (due different
versions affected):


Thank you && Regards, Jan.

I believe Alan Boudreault (MapServer team member that I've added to
the CC
list) has already asked the Debian security team to request for a
number, but without any result for now. Maybe he can confirm.

Best regards,


Hello Josh, Steve, vendors,

    the following has been brought to our attention:
    [1] https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=722545
    [2] http://trac.osgeo.org/mapserver/ticket/3903

More from [2]:

This ticket is to track fixes to prevent SQL injections through
filter encoding (in WMS, WFS and SOS), as well as a potential SQL
injection in WMS time support.

Your system may be vulnerable if it has MapServer with OGC
enabled, with layers connecting to an SQL RDBMS backend, either
or via OGR.

All versions of MapServer 4.x, 5.x and 6.x are potentially
All users are ** strongly encouraged ** to upgrade to one of the
releases with the fixes.

Could you allocate a CVE id for this?

Thank you&& Regards, Jan.
